MARINADES, RUBS & SAUCES

Oh yeah, it’s all about the secret sauce isn’t it? Ask anyone who BBQ’s much and you can bet your boots the conversation is going to come around to this topic. The right marinade, rub or sauce can transform an ordinary cut of meat, ho-hum piece of fish, rubbery chunk of chicken, or even a bland block of tofu into a tasty delight. On the other hand, poor quality or lack of these important cooking allies can leave even the best quality fare just… okay. There’s a reason great restaurants staff their kitchens with Sauciers, specialists dedicated to this incredible culinary art. We believe this is a category where you can combine our oils, vinegars and salts in the most creative and powerful ways. Read on for a few ideas…
